http://www.custom-hypnosis.com/cancer to learn about the power of spiritual healing and how it can help you by taking this free e-course. It may come as a surprise to you but about one-third of the human diet comes from insect pollinated plants. You will also find that it is honeybees that are responsible for 80% of the pollination. You probably already know that honeybees produce honey. You may also find it interesting that honey is the only food humans consume that is produced by an insect. If you are looking to purchase organic honey, you may be curious to know that is produced by bee apiaries in habitats that are far more controlled than are habitats that produce regular honey.

  2. 2. It may come as a surprise to you but about one-third of thehuman diet comes from insect pollinated plants. You will alsofind that it is honeybees that are responsible for 80% of thepollination. You probably already know that honeybees producehoney. You may also find it interesting that honey is the onlyfood humans consume that is produced by an insect. If you arelooking to purchase organic honey, you may be curious to knowthat is produced by bee apiaries in habitats that are far morecontrolled than are habitats that produce regular honey.Organic Honey StandardsAlthough these standards may change over time, here are somecommon standards for honey to be classified as organic. Firstthe source of nectar, honeydew or pollen must be come fromorganic sources. This means that the apiary must be on land thatis pesticide free. There usually needs to be a buffer zonebetween the land that is used for organic honey creation and thatland where pesticides are used. Another requirement is that anynew bees that are introduced have to come from otherorganically maintained hives.
  3. 3. Benefits of Organic HoneySo why would individuals want to eat organic honey and paymore money for this product? The main reason is that they donot to have to eat food that is potentially contaminated withpesticides and other harmful substances. They are doing it fortheir health. Also these organic honeys are free of antibioticsthat are used with to help protect normal bees from disease.Organic honey bees do not get these antibiotics. Now you maythink, that antibiotics are not bad for use. However the ones usedfor the bees are potentially bad for us. They may increase therisk of cancer and other diseases in humans. Organic honey isalso not pasteurized. Honey has many antibacterial anti-inflammatory properties. They also have anti-oxidants andphytochemicals which are known to help protect the body fromcancer and other diseases. When the honey is pasteurized, manyof these properties are destroyed and the honey is not as healthy.They also may be doing for the environment. This is becausethat those same pesticides that pollute our bodies also pollute thesoil and nearby water sources. Also the organic bees are notkilled after the honey harvest as many of the normal bees aredue to the cost of keeping them alive over the winter.So even though organic honey will likely cost you a little morebut you can feel confident that the product is generally saferthan non-organic honey and that the live beehives and theirhabitat are contributing to a healthier planet.
